Each candidate is responsible for providing documentation certifying his or her qualifications for admission, such as a high school diploma, containing a clause clearly stating the applicant's eligibility to apply for admission to institutions of higher education in the country in which the diploma was issued. In case there is no such clause, the diploma should be accompanied by a certification (stating the above mentioned eligibility) issued by:

  • the high school the candidate graduated from
  • the educational authorities of the country in which the diploma was issued
  • an embassy or consulate of the Republic of Poland

Upon receipt of the high school diploma, the candidate is obligated to provide this to the University as well.

Medicine
Medicine is the science and practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness. Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease, typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine
When taken
To be well shaken.
George Colman the Younger, Broad Grins, The Newcastle Apothecary, Stanza 12.
Medicine
No cataplasm so rare,
Collected from all simples that have virtue
Under the moon, can save the thing from death.
William Shakespeare, Hamlet (1600-02), Act IV, scene 7, line 144.
Medicine
The ignorance and general incompetency of the average graduate of the American medical Schools, at the time when he receives the degree which turns him loose upon the community, is something horrible to contemplate.
Charles Eliot, President of Harvard University (1869). In response to this call for reform, Harvard Professor of Surgery Harold Bigelow replied "He actually proposes to have written examinations for the degree of doctor of medicine. I had to tell him that he knew nothing about the quality of Harvard medical students. More than half of them can barely write. Of course they can't pass written examinations...No medical school has thought it proper to risk large existing classes and larger receipts by introducing more rigorous standards".
